Alligator Found in Detroit
A good Samaritan, who witnessed a truck pull up and dump the large alligator in the lot, decided to take it home and keep it warm until animal control could come and get it. Shontez Gibson said in a televised interview that he was with his uncle at the time when the two witnessed the creature being dumped. Examiner Reported...
Shontez rescued the scaled amphibian and took it home. He had the alligator in his bedroom and used a space heater to keep it warm. He also fed his new roommate fish while waiting for a more permanent home to be found for this creature of the tropics.
On Friday Shontez lost his new roommate, but in a good way. The Michigan Humane Society took the alligator to it’s facility in Rochester Hills, which is just north of Detroit. According to the Detroit Free Press, the lots in this city are often used for dumping grounds of garbage and other unusable or unwanted items, but alligators are not something you’d usually find among the discarded rubble.
